The Conservatory Book by Peter Marston
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An illustrated exploration of conservatory designs and styles. It considers both internal and external aspects of "garden room" design, showing how to complement period features, create thematic and physical links with the garden beyond and dress the scene with intriguing accessories. It considers the role of new and traditional materials in developing a mood or theme, and the all-important use of glass to define and influence the look. Peter Marston demonstrates how to adapt this flexible space to particular needs such as a home office, area for entertaining or family room, as well as offering suggestions for heating, ventilation and storage. There is practical and aesthetic advice on conservatory gardening, including a wide range of popular and decorative plants that thrive under glass.

Author Biography
